If you have painful or frequent Braxton Hicks, was your labout more intense but less problemtic?

Just curious since have lots of BHs and did last time.

Thank you patient people

i had lost of realy strong BH from about 25 weeks infact they got so strong that i through that it was the real thing twice, i found that i had a realy easy not too painfull birth that only lasted 11.5 hours, compared to my mates who didnt have any BH and had labours of 25+ hours.

No BH ever either. When my labour started my contractions soon got very intense, and lasted 10 hours.

Think we've got a girl's name sorted but not a middle anme. Still in a dilemma about a boy's name!

I'm hoping that watching teh match next week will maybe push me into some action. Maybe.

lots of painful BH then 8 hour labour - intense but straightforward. no idea if there's a connection. mind you, after experiencing the contractions i laugh now at the thought that i found BH painful.....

No Braxton Hicks & a very short fast labour-managed with no pain relief so can't have been that bad.

I had BH from about 20 weeks, really worried me as DD1 had been prem and I thought this one was going the same way! (Shwe ended up 9 days late!) Total labour was 6hrs, with only the last 1 1/2 - 2 being really painful. I also had terrible after pains, not sure if there's any link??

I think someone described frequent BH as having an irritable uterus!

Hmm, looks like a bit of a link then? She says hopefully.

Heaps of BH, threatened labour @ 25weeks and delivered premmie @ 35 weeks. I am doing my darndest not to have BH this time by taking large doses of magnesium and avoiding orgasm.
